Trump Holds South Carolina Rally Ahead Of State GOP Primary

As the South Carolina Republican presidential primary nears, former President Donald Trump recently held a rally in The Palmetto State. The former president is poised to defeat former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) in the upcoming contest.

Polls show Trump trouncing Haley in South Carolina, with a recent survey by Winthrop University showing that among GOP voters in the state, 65% say they would support the former president, compared to just 29% who support the former South Carolina governor.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has been floated as a potential running mate for Trump in 2024. The South Carolina congressman appeared alongside the former president at the North Charleston rally.

Trump’s rally in North Charleston comes after he lost the area to former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016 and then-presidential candidate Joe Biden in 2020. Nonetheless, the former president has won South Carolina by wide margins in both elections.

During his rally, Trump said Americans were better off when he was president.
“America was stronger, richer, safer and more confident than ever when I was sitting behind that desk in the Oval Office,” he said.

The former president added that during his tenure in the White House, the U.S. had the greatest economy worldwide because of his administration’s record tax cuts and increased wages for all Americans.

Trump repeatedly referred to President Joe Biden as “crooked Joe,” claiming the president has unleashed a war on America’s “great middle class.”

“He inherited an amazing success from me,” Trump said. “He wrecked it almost immediately and turned it into something resembling much worse than a third-world nation.”

Trump’s attacks against Biden come after the former president condemned Haley during a recent rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, saying he only appointed her to serve as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations (UN) to ensure that then-South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Henry McMaster becomes governor.

“Three years ago, she [Nikki Haley] said, ‘All of us who worked with Donald Trump witnessed a tremendous amount of love and respect he had for our military. He was determined to protect our military. He loved our military so much,’” the former president said. “Now, she says, ‘Well, I don’t know too much about him and the military.’”
